RE: Banner? Edit

Hello. The banner you made is pretty cool, but unfortunatley the mandatory adverts Wikia require on the main page means there isn't much point in having a banner. We can't put the banner above the top advert, because Wikia automatically places the top add right at the top of the page, and the boxed advert to the left would just cover up the banner anyway. Sorry. --Fantomas 09:18, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

Help Edit

I don't know what help I can be, but I'll help if you need it. If you happen to edit at the Final Fantasy wiki, I can help you there too.Socom92 18:54, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

I don't how to add the banner, but the Final Fantasy wiki has one. So someone there must know something. I'll check into it. P.S. Awesome banner

I'm working on the banner problem. I know how to add it now. Just need an admin to do the work for me, or get admin rights myself. Socom92 18:41, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Edit

Hi there, do you mean add that banner to your personal skin? If so, you can

.color2 {
    background: url("http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100225064627/metalgear/images/3/3d/MGmonaco.jpg") no-repeat;
}

or

#wikia_header {
    background: url("http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100225064627/metalgear/images/3/3d/MGmonaco.jpg") no-repeat;
}

or

#background_strip {
    background: url("http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100225064627/metalgear/images/3/3d/MGmonaco.jpg") no-repeat;
    border:0 none;
}

to User:Soul_reaper/monaco.css, depending on the effect you want

but to have it added to the site, it doesn't go with the new skin, so you'd have to talk to the adminstrators and see if they want it — 12:10, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Headline text Edit

It's not an obvious reference. Besides the use of the word "rising", it has nothing to do with the game at all. --Fantomas 13:23, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

There is literally nothing to indicate it is a reference to the game, outside of the use of the word rising. Which is quite a common word in the English language. --Fantomas 13:37, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Ohohoho! Edit

Grow up and get a life, "Santa Claus". It's cool that you're Australian though. Just like the character Dirty Duck. 70.127.205.40 13:07, October 8, 2010 (UTC) So I should get a life despite the fact that you've clearly spent most of your day editing an article based solely on the fact that you can't get your way? The majority seem to agree that the article should be worded in such away that does not blatantly mention rape. And the whole 'I was talking to Fantomas. Learn how to read.' thing, you didn't mention Fantomas in your edit summary, you simply said 'The saxophone music even makes that clear. There was no saxophone music when Raiden was beaten to a pulp. You call me an idiot yet you can't ban me. You believe that Big Boss's real name is John Doe.' To be completely honest I always came to the conclusion that there was definitely something sexual in the scene but they clearly did it in such a way that the viewer can come to his own conclusions about what's happening and the article should reflect that instead of blatantly stating that he tried to rape Raiden--Soul reaper 13:17, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Fantomas called me an idiot in the EDIT SUMMARY. And learn how to edit in your talk page. You screwed up your reply. Also, I've only been on the computer for like an hour today. It's 9:32 in the morning today.--70.127.205.40 13:29, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Engineers and Scientists pictures question. Edit

Hi. I have a question about the Engineers and Scientists pictures you uploaded. For one thing, where did you get them? I'm asking because wherever you got them, could you find out if there are any pictures of Soviet officers? If you got it ingame, can you please take a picture of them and then upload it? Weedle McHairybug 19:49, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

ChatEdit

I'm assuming you are an admin, so I'm going to tget right to the point. Has their been a consideration for chat here? I think it'd be a great wiki to have chat on. If you are not an admin, and simply a devoted helper, could you please direct me to one? Thanks, would like to hear back on this. (Apologizing now for the broken signature) --File:Valoopy sig.jpg ☢Valoopy☣ 00:48, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

You sure a new admin can't click it on? I know on my wiki, I just had to go to the admin dashboard, click on Wikia Labs, and flip the switch (it literally was a switch) for chat to on. --File:Valoopy sig.jpg ☢Valoopy☣ 01:21, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the help! "You're pretty good." --File:Valoopy sig.jpg ☢Valoopy☣ 02:00, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Say, does the name "Soulreaper" have to do with Dissection?

94.68.4.98 17:55, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

No, I've never heard of Dissection. My user name is a reference to Bleach and a slight nod to Naruto.--Soul reaper 06:11, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

MGS4 website downloads. Edit

Hi.

I have a question for you. Have you ever bought Drebins items on the Metal Gear Solid 4 website and downloaded them? I'm asking because I got a Sunny Camera, but I'm having problems figuring out how to download it, so if you've done it before, I'm going to need advice. Weedle McHairybug 20:31, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Re: New main page layout Edit

Yes, upload what you need to. I would rather wait until the design is finalized before implementing it, if that's ok. --Bluerock 09:47, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Ready when you are. Shall I start with updating the main page now? I've noticed a few mino issues, but I'm sure they can be corrected easily. (Activity Feed and broken link to no. articles). --Bluerock 19:05, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
I've uploaded the new page. Could you take a look and correct anything that looks out of place. Activity feed seems to display stragely for the first few bullet points. There's a large gap at the top, which I assume is where Wikia places the advertisement, but it isn't showing in my browser. Also, which images do I need to save to my computer in order to change the background/css?--Bluerock 07:45, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Edited the css now. --Bluerock 10:51, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
I've noticed that some of the headings on the sections link directly to their images, so can we change these? Additionally, is it possible to change the font for the "See All" option, on the "Releases" section, as it is not the most easy to read in its current state? Thanks. --Bluerock 11:42, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Concerning the ad, the old design was formatted similar to articles, in the that the right third of the page was devoted to various boxes, and the square-shaped ad fit in here. With the new design spread across the entire page, there is no place for this square ad to fit. Are we therefore intending to have another banner like ad, both above and below the main page title? If so, I am concerned about how this will look, and whether integrating it into the design might appear better. I suppose we'll have to wait for Wikia's response on this. --Bluerock 12:09, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
I will temporarily unlock the page so that you can work on it. I think that's the easiest thing to do. Also, I think we are missing the banner that appears behind the main logo - the white background means you can't see it at the moment. --Bluerock 12:35, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the help with the main page. Occasionaly, the ad in the right column will be a rectangular-shaped one, which leads further down the page, and this disrupts the formatting of the Games template. Do you know any way of keeping the ads in one size/shape or another to avoid this? --Bluerock 19:56, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
I saw your topic on the Community Central forum, so I came to the wiki to check things out. I've caught up on the discussion between you and Bluerock and wanted to give you some feedback. The most common main page ad size is 300x250, which is what's appearing now and not causing any problems. Occasionally, the tall 300x600 ad will appear (happens automatically and there is no way to control it from an editing standpoint), which will cover part of the games section due to the page's current formatting. The only way to ensure that the page's content will automatically "wrap around" the ad (regardless of size) is by using the left and right column tags. This is why they were being used before this redesign you guys are doing. Therefore I would recommend re-adding the column tags as part of the redesign, because you (and even I) have no way of knowing when the tall ad will appear. Hope that helps. Keep up the great work!

I kinda need some help with images. Edit

Hi.

I managed to find some images from MPO+, but the problem is that the images can't be right-clicked outside of using google images and clicking on them. If you have any ideas in regards to getting them saved and then uploaded onto the wiki, or heck, even do it yourself, it would be much appreciated. Here's the link:

http://tiberclan.webs.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=10126560

And more specifically, the images I'm looking for relate to uniforms. More to the point:

http://tiberclan.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=101855669

The other uniforms I've either already gotten on the MPO+ galleries via other means or had already gotten via Google images. We need to complete the promotional images anyway, so the best way we can do so is this, that's why I need your help. Weedle McHairybug 01:57, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

EDIT: The fifth link is supposed to be http://tiberclan.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=101855661. My apologies. Weedle McHairybug 02:23, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. At least the wiki now has all the promotional content from the Japanese version of Portable Ops Plus (and thus, makes my gettng the Japanese version of MPO+ unnecessary). The American and European versions, as well as the Japanese prefecture soldiers versions to a certain extent however, still have a long way to go. I'm currently taking pictures of the state soldiers right now, and already uploaded four of them (each has a front and back profile). Weedle McHairybug 02:40, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

I'm taking them from my PSP screen with my digital camera. The only other times I found images on the web relating to the states soldiers are when they are with a soldier that I don't want in the pic or if the picture in question was focusing on a glitch in the game (and I'm guessing glitched pics would not be good pics to use). Anyways, I usually only use my digital camera on my computer for this site if it either one of the games I don't have (IE, Metal Gear Solids 1 [original, not twin snakes], 2, 3, 4), or if I do have the game, but certain circumstances prevent me from taking the picture of it under normal circumstances (eg, key C in Portable Ops' ravine due to my already having recruited Sokolov by the time I'm supposed to start the Sokolov recruitment sidequest at the Harbor.

Well, besides the EU soldiers/State soldiers/Japanese Prefecture soldiers and possibly the OctoCamo options, the only other things missing from the site is a full body screenshot(s) of the WonderGoo camo and the M81 Woodland camo from MGS3, as well as those DLC Monster Hunter shirts in the Japanese version of Peace Walker. Weedle McHairybug 03:00, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

M81 Woodland Edit

Hi.

I tried finding the M81 Woodland uniform from MGS3 online, but I couldn't find any pictures on it. I was wondering if you could find it, either on your PS2 or online? On a related note, finding the WonderGOO uniform from MGS3 is also difficult as well.

Weedle McHairybug 01:40, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

Twitter source: Edit

Well, after asking a few questions to the guy who first showed it on MGSForums, I've finally found the specific twitter post that showed it:

http://twitter.com/#!/Kojima_Hideo/status/124351014760488961

Weedle McHairybug 20:27, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

New skin Edit

Hey Soulreaper, I've noticed a small issue with the new skin we added a few months ago to the site. The link beneath the"Random page" button, at the top right corner the page, is a little out of alignment (only the bottom third of the button will allow you to click on the link). The "Wiki activity" button below that seems ok though. Are we able to correct this? Cheers! --Bluerock 13:48, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

However, this issue doesn't seem to occur on the main page. --Bluerock 14:32, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, that seems to have done the trick. --Bluerock 17:47, January 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Soulreaper, just a heads up. We may need to alter the layout slightly to accomodate Wikia's new look, which seems to have been rolled out today. While, we're at it, I'm thinking we could make a few small changes to make the main page a little more consistent with the rest of the wiki (i.e. the narrow column of boxes to the right), if you're up for it? I've found that it's a little jarring to go from the layout of all the articles to the main page, which is spread out across the browser window in contrast. Just a thought anyway. --Bluerock 22:17, March 8, 2012 (UTC)

The layout hasn't radically changed, but there are a few issues that I've come across, which occur on other Wiki sites as well: the drop down box from the search box is always obscured; the links on the banner are not aligned correctly with the banner anymore. --Bluerock 13:39, March 14, 2012 (UTC)
I know you're more busy these days, but if you have the time, could you help me to implement the chat feature onto the main page to make it more visible for visitors? --Bluerock 12:22, March 18, 2012 (UTC)
The new navigation menu was actually activated by me rather than forced on us, but it does need some major improvement. User:Technobliterator has been helping me out in this regard, but since you're probably more familiar with wikia coding than I am, perhaps you could collaborate with him. If anything needs changing to the css, just let me know, and I can implement it. Technobliterator already added a link to the chat in the navigation menu. --Bluerock 11:05, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Background image update Edit

Hi Soul reaper. As you've probably noticed, the recent change to the Wikia skin added a gap to the top of the page between the global navigation bar and the top of the content area (wiki logo, wiki navigation). This has resulted in the white middle area of the background being visible. Bluerock informed me that you made the current background image, so I was wondering if you still had the image you used to make the background (or could link me to where you got it) in order to update the background image. If you do know where the original image is, I would be happy to update the background. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 20:59, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

That was fast. :) Well done, sir. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 16:11, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

Kojima edits. Edit

Hi.

Not that it matters much, but Kojima has an English Twitter account, which indicates that, at the very least, he does have some basic knowledge of English. But again, it probably won't matter, as the guy who joined up (and got banned) was most likely an imposter. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 02:43, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

Wiki Skin Edit

Hey Soul reaper,

Do you still have any of the original files you used to make the current skin? I was wondering whether we might be able to modify it, to reduce the blank space in the centre. Wikia sometimes places a large advert on the top of the main page,, which pushes the page content down and exposes the white space of the current skin (I discussed this with User:JAlbor on his talk page). Any help you could give would be great!

--Bluerock (talk) 23:49, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

Wiki main page
White space between top advert and main heading.
BluerockAdded by Bluerock
Sure. As you can see, the larger advert at the top exposes the central white space of the skin behind it, due to the overall content being pushed down farther. This larger format ad occurs randomly across wikia, being 130px high instead of the normal 90px. --Bluerock (talk) 10:45, January 3, 2013 (UTC)


I just asked about this on the Wikia common technical support about the ad size and there's nothing that can really be done about it, so they suggested the same thing about removing the white space on the skin (either that or add a darker colored background, which probably wouldn't look as good). It might be a good idea just to eliminate that blank space in the skin altogether, just to preempt any other technical issues/bugs that may crop up in furture.
Regarding the game navigation box, I was thinking maybe it was a little redundant, given that one can head straight to a list of all the games using the buttons at the top. I also had the idea of using one of those slide shows to possibly replace those buttons, as I think that may make the main page look better, but I haven't decided on it yet.
You've probably noticed I modified the main page a little to simplify it somewhat. With the boxes being moved about; the images you made that were used as headers were all stretched/compressed out of shape, so I put the appropriate templates and headers straight on there instead. Could probably use a little more improvement but it will suffice for now. I know that you put some effort into designing all those templates to get them displaying correctly, so I hope you don't mind the changes.
Any more thoughts or ideas, just let me know. :) --Bluerock (talk) 03:04, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
Hi Soulreaper, any luck with the new/updated skin? --Bluerock (talk) 13:13, January 25, 2013 (UTC)

MY images Edit

Listen, Soul I just wanted to add a few images of Snake in Metal Gear Solid 4, wearing the South American rebel soldiersdisguise to add a little detail and to show what the article meant by Snake looked like Pliskin from Metal Gear Solid 2, I didn't know it wasn't allowed for me to do that, I am sorry. Jim Logan  21:55, January 7, 2013 (UTC)

O.k, I get it, I am going to put ONE image on there. JUST ONE. Thank you Mr. Reaper.

More main page issues Edit

Sorry to be a bother, but please go to the talk for the main page, I'm afraid by fixing one issue, you've created another.

NES classic map (and possibly manual) Edit

Hi. I found some ebay auctions for the classic map for the NES Metal Gear, as well as the instruction manual, and I was planning to add them to the NES Metal Gear article. However, I can't save the image due to it going into zoom mode automatically, so can you do me a favor and find a way to upload the images, or at least find another source that both has the classic map and is actually savable? Here are the links:

Solid Snake imageEdit

I did not recieve any message from 'Weedle', why can't I change the picture?—Preceding unsigned comment added by ShogunTake (talkcontribs)

Weedle's message could be found on the Edit History of Snake's page. The following were Weedle's comments: "Okay, first of all, Shogun Take1, when using a cover photo, we don't resort to thumbnails. Second, when using cover photos, with some exceptions, we use the most current chronological appearance. In this case, we use his MGS4 appearance." Now in fairness, I can see why you're trying to change his appearance, but the subject regarding character profile images are currently being discussed. We're potentially thinking of doing a multi-tab system for the images so that we can showcase the character's main appearances in each game. In that regard, I'd advise you to halt your changes until this case has been solved. While I can somehow understand why you wouldn't want Old Snake's image as the profile image (though I personally disagree since his role in MGS4 was still pretty significant especially for Snake), please understand that this is only (and most likely) temporary. Also sign your messages whenever you comment on a talk page (makes it easier to keep track of who's who). --DementedP (talk) 13:05, August 3, 2013 (UTC)

To build off what DementedP said. This is a wiki, it is a community operated and driven project, that means that any individual can make changes, but it also means changes must be made as part of the community. Now, for simple edits, corrections, the addition of missing information, or in some cases images it is generally fair game so long as things are done in an appropriate manner. For major things such as altering the main image of a page, renaming, deleting or moving pages, altering large portions of a page and some other cases, you must open up a dialogue with the community (everyone on the wiki) and the administrators (currently Bluerock is the only one who falls within this category). The best place to do so is on the talk page for the article in question, though in some cases it may be moved to a forum or blog if it is too long, or a user's talk page if the case is between specific people.--Soul reaper (talk) 13:55, August 4, 2013 (UTC)

Melee Weapons in MGS5:Edit

Hi, do you know if combat knives and machetes will be usable by Snake in MGS5? It is an open world game after all.  Btgr (talk) 22:41, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

I don't know. They haven't announced anything in regards to melee weapons.--Soul reaper (talk) 16:52, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks dude. You finished what I tried to do with the characters' images

MGS: Integral's VR mission Puzzle #4 Edit

Hello, Soul reaper. Currently, I'm having a problem with the VR mission Puzzle #4 of MGS: Intergral's. With the Stinger missile launcher, I could only destroy the first 23 targets, the other six are behind the wall of the main stage and I cannot reach them. When attempts to aim through the holes in the wall are made, the Stinger missile would always hit the wall before the thruster activates; aiming at a higher angle to compensate for the height loss before the thruster activates tends to be imprecise. Perhaps I can have some advice on this? Thanks.

  • P/S: By the way, Soul reaper, back at Ōkami wiki, people are having (well, due to the low amount of active users, "had") a discussion about the demotion of DarkSmasherElite, The Yoshiman and you. Perhaps you should check it out.—"Is there such a thing as an absolute, timeless enemy? There is no such thing, and never has been. And the reason is that our enemies are human beings like us. They can only be our enemies in relative terms."—The Boss (04:18, December 24, 2013)
Hey, I've never managed to get my hands on a copy of Integral so I can't really offer much firsthand help. This guide might be able to shed some light on it. In regards to that mission it says:
"Level 04 - In this stage you should know that when the Stinger lock-on the hard-to-reach target, if you shoot your missile to the nearby window then the missile will hit the object with that nearby window. Once the game start, run to the stair and stand on the 1st step down from top of the stair. Face north and use your Stinger to destroy most of the blocks. Aim your Stinger to the upper left window, lock on to the object 1st then quickly shoot the missile from this window. Move down to the lower left window and destroy the object. Move right to the window in the right of lower left window and destroy the object. Lock on to the northernmost object and shoot missile from the right side opening area. Now, face east and destroy two objects through the upper window by locking onto it 1st. Checkpoint is in the east."
Hopefully that can shed some light on things for you. As for Okami Wiki, well I'd say they're justified in demoting all of us. Even when I was there I'd never once seen DarkSmasherElite, and Yoshiman stopped helping out after a while as well. I'd always intended to go back to it but real life got in the way and its been well over a year since I did anything of consequence on there. I don't really have enough free time to perform the duties of an admin so there's no reason for me to keep the rank, and unless the other two have returned to regular duty then I'd say the same is true of them.--Soul reaper (talk) 05:53, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Soul Reaper Edit

How's it going? I was wondering if you'd like to chat sooner or later, if so hit me up. If not... I understand.

Miller and Paz's briefing file icons. Edit

Hi.

When you have the time, can you upload the briefing file icons for Miller and Paz? I noticed the portraits you uploaded for Amanda, Chico, Huey, Strangelove, and Cecile to represent their in-game appearances (as not counting the graphic novel cutscenes, they lack any in-game renders) were especially useful for their respective briefing files sections of the Walkman article. Since Miller and Paz's icons are absent (since unlike them, they DO have in-game renders that aren't of either the graphic novel cutscenes or the Walkman briefing file covers), I was wondering if you could upload them (I lack a PS3 or Xbox 360, and I certainly neither have the desire nor the current ability to get one just to take care of the images. Besides, even if I did have the interest and the time/ability to get those systems, I don't know how to actually capture those specific images and upload them). Want to make the WALKMAN article seem more complete.

On a semi-related note, can you try to replace Paz's current Peace Walker image with, say her being in the cockpit of ZEKE? The current image was taken from the Date Paz mission, which has ambiguous canonicity, and as such it seems to be a better idea to use a representative image that is undeniably canon. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 12:45, January 16, 2014 (UTC)

All done--Soul reaper (talk) 06:43, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I also took the liberty of adding the portraits of Miller, Amanda, and Chico to the About the Mission portion as well, though I had to also leave in a huge amount of space due to it otherwise messing up the article. I might request the icon for the data files section, but that probably won't be necessary for now. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 10:47, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

Talk page problems. Edit

Hi.

Since you run the CSS for the Metal Gear Wiki, I want to notify you of a problem that's been occurring on this wiki at the very least. When I try to open up a talk page that hasn't been created, its showing a line of code in a manner that generally indicates a glitch or information data loss (either that, or Google claims the link is broken). Can you investigate the problem? Weedle McHairybug (talk) 22:49, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

Are you still having the problem? I've just tried opening new talk pages for a number of pages without issue so I'll need you to try a few things. First, try opening the new talk page while logged out and then log in and try it again to see if any thing's different. If the issue is with your account then things should be fine while you're logged out. Next I want you to go to some other wiki's, any will do, and find articles that haven't yet had talk pages created to see if the problem only occurs here or is wikia wide. Finally, if the problem occurs please post a link to the page you're trying to open and I'll see what happens if I go there. I can't actually make any changes to the CSS itself (only admins have that power) but I doubt its connected. It may have been a temporary issue but let me know if it persists. If it keeps happening it may be worth clearing you cache and restarting your browser, and if that doesn't help, contacting wikia support. --Soul reaper (talk) 07:46, January 25, 2014 (UTC)

It may be a Wiki-wide problem, since I experienced similar things at Simpsons Wiki and Disney Wiki. I'd give you an image, but for some reason the ctrl-print screen or even simply printscreen buttons won't work, so I can't give you an image. Also made sure I did it while not logged in.

You're going to have to go to Wikia support with this one. Tell them what OS you're using and which browsers you're having the issue with.--Soul reaper (talk) 11:34, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Just a quick question Edit

Hey Soul Reaper, I was wondering, would my blogs go under that [Fan Made] category, or would it not? I'm just asking because I want to be as through as possible.

Semper Fi (talk) 12:34, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

Nah, blogs are their own thing and don't require categorisation. You're fine leaving them as is.--Soul reaper (talk) 00:53, February 5, 2014 (UTC)

Peace Walker and MGS4 DLC pages Edit

Hi.

Just out of curiosity, do you think the Peace Walker and MGS4 DLC pages are good as is or do you think they need to either be edited or rewritten entirely from scratch? Just want to know, that's all. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 21:00, February 6, 2014 (UTC)

The 4 one is alright, it could probably use some touch ups but there's nothing dramatically wrong with it, at least in my mind. It's easy to follow and covers all the content. Images of the OctoCamo patterns would probably be better if they were from the game's model viewer and consistent in layout, but we're kind of limited in what we can get. The Peace Walker page on the other hand is kind of a mess. In part this is due to Wikia's sub heading system which eventually makes the headings smaller than the main text, but the overall layout makes it difficult to follow. Truth be told I went to clean it up when I was doing the DLC pages but I kind of just got lost looking at it. It also suffers from the overly large gallery issue we have on most pages these days. Going by the scroll bar, it seems that about a third of the page is the gallery.--Soul reaper (talk) 01:12, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, thought so regarding the Peace Walker page. Yeah, we're probably going to need to fix that one up. Only problem is how do we fix it. We need to do a better job regarding the gallery, for one, cut it down, maybe split it up similar to what we've got on the Revengeance page. The others are a problem, though, especially regarding how to make them detailed like the Revengeance DLC page (which might be the way to fix it). If you have any ideas, beyond the headers and gallery I mean, feel free to share. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 01:22, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
Given the relative lack of information available (or in some cases needed) for certain aspects, it may be best to present things such as the VOCALOID content in list form, rather than making each one a one line section. Tables could be useful for organising the content a little better. In all honesty I'd ditch the Japanese description part of the gallery all together. I know you put a lot of work into getting them, but given that we're an English based wiki, it'll be pretty rare that we'll get readers who really benefit from their presence. They're also taken by camera, which in terms of content shown on a screen can be something of an issue in regards to copyright and things like that. Also speaking of the Revengeance page gallery, that's going to need some trimming down at some stage. Bluerock and I briefly discussed the possibility of gallery pages (similar to what is used on Bleach Wiki and Zelda Wiki) but there's still a lot that would need to be discussed before anything like that happens. In many cases we still have repetitive images that simply don't add much. --Soul reaper (talk) 01:39, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
Anyway, I'll take another look at the PW DLC page when I have more time and see what I can do.--Soul reaper (talk) 01:47, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
The Japanese screencaps were largely to get either Arkhound or another user fluent in Japanese to translate the descriptions listed there (and I had to do it pretty much last minute due to the DLC service on the PSP being close to terminated). Since it pretty much is all translated and noted, there's not much else needed for the images. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 02:03, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
Hey Weedle, the page says things about the "KB count" and "all cost 130 KB", would I be right in assuming that KB is referring to kilobytes, or was there some form of point system used to buy the DLC?--Soul reaper (talk) 11:43, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
It's kilobytes. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 11:59, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks--Soul reaper (talk) 12:18, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Bugs?Edit

Hey there Soul reaper. Of course I'm around to help, and I'm ever not, someone at Wikia certainly is! If you want, you can shoot me an email with the Firefox bug details or find me on Skype. I'll submit a ticket and follow up on it for you. Just let me know what works best. Here's my email: jorge@wikia-inc.com. Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 17:07, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Ground Zeroes-related favor. Edit

Hi. I have a favor to ask: When the PS3 version comes out for Ground Zeroes, can you try to upload the Deja vu trophy when/if you get it? Weedle McHairybug (talk) 15:02, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

Do you mean the icon, details or both? Either way, I'll try, but I'm not sure when I'll be getting GZ just yet. --Soul reaper (talk) 15:04, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
The icon, definitely. Maybe the details as well (though it probably wouldn't matter as its probably going to be the same as the Jamais Vu achievement, it can't hurt to play it safe). Weedle McHairybug (talk) 15:10, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, no problem. If it's not done by the time I get the game I'll give it a go.--Soul reaper (talk) 15:11, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I'd do it myself, but I neither have a PS3, nor do I have the funding, the time, or even any real motivation to get it (especially when I'm nearly done with College, and its going to be more tedious thanks to the snowstorms in Atlanta as it is), and even if I did have any or all of the four, I have absolutely no idea how to take images from the game, certainly not the type of images you are capable of taking from the game.
